Here’s some great news from out of the CW DC Superhero Factory: One of Superman’s most iconic villains, General Zod, will make his first appearance on Supergirl next month. The producers are keeping a tight lip on his exact plot or what he does, but since it’s already been confirmed that Superman returns in the season finale, this story writes itself.
Actor Mark Gibbon will be stepping into the despot’s boots. This guy has actually been in some DC material before: he had minor background parts on four separate episodes of Smallville (playing four different people), he appeared as an oil platform worker in the movie Man of Steel, and most recently he had a bit part on an episode of Arrow. We’re just going to assume he was Zod in disguise in that episode.
It’ll take at least two Kryptonians (and maybe Cat Grant) to take down Zod, but don’t expect that to be the end of him. At least, it won’t be the end of him if the show writers know what they’re doing. Supergirl returns tonight and will air its final five episodes of the season up until the May 22 finale.
